News International legal boss Tom Crone makes a good point in The Sun today (he can write as well it seems) – about the Ross/Brand furore.
He points out that Jonathan Ross is a “serial litigant” who is the first person to run to his lawyer Keith Schilling when he feel his privacy is being infringed.
It’s interesting someone who hates kiss ‘n tells should egg Brand on by shouting: ‘He f****d your granddaughter.”
He suggests Ross should consult is lawyers on what privacy and harrassment means.
But I think it is stretching things to suggest Ross has commmitted an actionable breach of privacy with his kiss and tell revelation about Brand’s liason with Andrew Sachs’ grand-daughter.
As a member of a Burlesque group called the Satanic Sluts, Georgina Baillie hardly had a reputation for being as pure as the driven snow before the broadcast. The Sluts describe themselves as”four of the sexiest depraved London jezebels” after all.
